loading values from spreadsheet to msflexgrid.

I want to load values from spreadsheet to mshflexgrid through a command button.

My spreadsheet has data in columns start at row3. Someone please let me know if I need to predefine the columns in msflexgrid before loading the data or its simply setting the mshflex grid matrix to spreadsheet cells.

Thank you in advance.
